Dallas vs Clippers: how will the third game of the series end?
22/08/2020, 01:00 GTM
Dallas's victory in the second game of the series was no coincidence. Rick Carlisle's wards defended incredibly confidently against the powerful attack of the Clippers. In fact, this was the key to success.
Rick Carlisle's charges looked great in the last match. Luka Doncic felt no longer lonely, as his partners actively helped him. Tim Hardway, Trey Burke and Seth Curry all played great. Their 48 points greatly helped Dallas to celebrate the victory. Moreover, Kristaps Porzingis played well, having scored 23 points and making seven rebounds in 36 minutes on the floor.
It is worth noting the excellent implementation of throws from outside the arc. Mavs got 44% of them. Almost every second shot hit the target. The Clippers had a much worse figure.

Paul George let his team down in the second match of the series. No matter how hard the 30-year-old player tried, he failed to score more than 14 points. This was not enough for the final victory of his team. Lou Williams tried to replace George, but he did not really succeed. Of course, he played a little better than Paul, but still it was not enough.
An interesting trend has emerged recently. As soon as Leonard-George plays below their level, the Clippers get into trouble. Doc Rivers has no real replacement for Paul. All this does not in the best way affect the team's game.
All teams fail. The Clippers are no exception. In the previous game, Paul George "took time out", but he is unlikely to play below his capabilities again. We believe Doc Rivers will be able to find the right words and point out to the team leader his mistakes.
The Clippers have won nearly all of their games against Dallas lately. The next one probably won't be an exception.
Our prediction is the victory of the Clippers taking into account the handicap (-3) points for the coefficient 1.69 in the bookmaker's office 1xBet.
